An aft cabin on my 30' boat was one of the things that attracted me - I think more about being well inside the boat. and at the time some form of seperate sleeping area (aka a "love nest"? ) seemed a good idea.

No walk through (on 30' that would be a lot of storage to "give" away)

No island berth and only sitting headroom...........with a climb over exit for a 2nd occupant.

(Sister Ship)

Good news is that with a cockpit tent / canopy the lack of walk through doesn't matter. and with the head in the forepeak it means that no need to listen to yer mate straining one out through a wafer thin bulkhead . Unless you want to..........

..........but as a single sailor one day mine will make a fine.......walk in lazarette of such things are dreams made of this being the main reason I haven't followed up on my day dream of cutting the aft cabin off, and building a proper wheelhouse (also too much like hard work , that and the Seadog Owner's Association would probably send a death squad to my house )..........I could well buy this boat again, but the Aft Cabin would be more of a minus to consider than as a plus.

BTW I can second that mention of ventilation in a small aft cabin and I'm in a temperate climate.........but that is addressable with some thought , some work and some £££ notes.

Simple cutoff valves in the hydraulic lines solves the windvane/autopilot problem. Hydraulis steering isn't my favorite part of Rita T but the Saye's Rig works just fine.

Two aft cabin boats to consider:

Kirk-Amel 36
No interior passage. Only offers for sale I found were in Euro. No problems with hydraulic steering or any of other form of wheel steering because it has a tiller. Not really a CC, aft cabin really seems to be just for sleeping, unless used by a child.

Cascade 42, cutter.
Usually no interior passage.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.

It's most comfortable midship if one is on a passage. If I was a marine architect designing a 40-foot to 50-foot boat, I'd think of placing the galley and dining area in the aft cabin, the storage/work-bench area in the bow, and the sleeping area midship, just to be different if nothing else.
